Little Green Lake, WI Drowning, May 1879

A case of drowning occurred on Little Green Lake a week ago. Christian Keuhn, aged 63, and a young man named Kertzbein went out in a boat fishing. Keuhn fell overboard and catching the side of the boat tipped it over. Three ladies named Mrs. James Densmore, Sarah Densmore and Lillie Densmore, were out boating and went to their rescue. Keuhn went under, but Mrs. D. caught Kertzbein by the hair and towed him in that manner to shore, where he arrived as near dead as alive. Keuhn's body was subsequently fished up.
